Shipnuck: Geoff Ogilvy said Charl has the best swing in golf. Phil Mickelson said the guy is a closer, and he can clearly putt under pressure. That shot he hit on the 1st hole on Sunday was maybe the greatest bump-and-run in Masters history.
Anonymous Pro: Charl's upside is tremendous, better than some other one-hit wonders who have won majors, like Trevor Immelman, Zach Johnson and Louis Oosthuizen. Schwartzel's swing is more conventional, it's better and he's only 26. Wow!
Hack: When Geoff Ogilvy, who has a beautiful swing, talks about envying Charl's swing, that suggests staying power. And those four birdies in a row at the finish is the stuff of legend.
Bamberger: Everything we're saying about Schwartzel, you could say about Martin Kaymer and it would be accurate. In Chubby Chandler's stable alone, Charl is probably the fifth or sixth best guy. What we need to figure out is, Who's the next Charl Schwartzel?
Garrity: Isn't one enough for now?
The Hole Truth
Van Sickle: As we prepare to return to the Stadium course, what's your favorite hole there that doesn't have an island green?
Garrity: My favorite is the par-5 16th, for a lot of the same reasons we like the 17th. It's picturesque and has a big risk-reward element. The main thing is, it shares that huge gallery with 17. Players feel as if the whole world is watching them.
Shipnuck: I like 18. It's such a tough drive and such an unforgiving hole. You've just survived 17 with all the nerves and the drama, but you're not done yet. It's a fun way to finish. You can't miss either shot at 18.
Van Sickle: Alan, you're definitely the first guy to use the word fun to describe the 18th.
